On this subject of "blown out of proportion" there are interesting statistics floating around out there.

The media of course are mostly in eastern Canada where the only border crossings are either bridges or well known locations including a few illegal on...

On another site, somebody who calls themselves a small-c conservative figures that a solution will be to confiscate 80% of the wealth of people who are worth more than half a million. I'm guessing he's worth about $490,000.
